ACE goes to Quebec City for the 2015 Canadian Rheumatology Association Annual Scientific Meeting & Arthritis Health Professions Association Annual Meeting

Making arthritis news: Sharing the consumer perspective through the Arthritis Broadcast Network Booth

Arthritis Consumer Experts (ACE) will be in Quebec City to attend the 2015 CRA Annual Scientific Meeting & AHPA Annual Meeting. The meetings, between Wednesday, February 4 and Saturday, February 7, bring rheumatologists and arthritis health professionals from all over Canada together to learn about and share the latest advances in arthritis research and care. The meeting also occurs during one of the world’s largest winter carnivals – the Quebec Winter Carnival.

ACE and representatives from the Canadian Arthritis Patient Alliance, the Canadian Spondylitis Association and the Arthritis Patient Advisory Board of Arthritis Research Canada will be there to share the arthritis consumer perspective. You can keep up-to-date on our activities by following us on Facebook or join the conversation on Twitter using #CRArthritis15.

While there, Arthritis Broadcast Network will be interviewing rheumatologists and other meeting presenters about their views on the state of arthritis in Canada. Discussion topics include:
  • Highlights of this year’s meetings that would benefit patients most;
  • Use of social media in relation to patient care and medical research; and,
  • Advances in the treatment of arthritis.
If you have any questions you would like ACE to ask the rheumatologist regarding the state of arthritis healthcare in Canada, please send your questions to and we will include them in the interviews. For more information regarding the meeting, please download the CRA mobile app or visit online here.
